Club Centenary FASA Project Working Well
Honorary Member Dame Mary Peters and Past President Courtenay Thompson recently visited the setting up for the FASA Halloween party at their Eden project at Millisle. Two members of the families of the bereaved by suicide who had set up the 'spooks photo booth' for the party accompanied them.
After the visit Dame Mary and PP Courtenay visited the new FASA Nightingale house on the Newtownards Road which will provide a 24hr drop in and call centre for those who are experiencing mental anguish and may be thinking of suicide.
They report that the work that FASA are involved in and the help for those involved in alcohol, substance abuse and suicide is very moving and the Club's donation of the Rotary Trailer really does help FASA make contact with young drop outs who are exposed to drugs and alcohol abuse in areas of the city off the beaten track.
